I knew it was going to be another bad weekend for rain. So here's a photo of a huge puddle in Highfields. I bet there are thousands and thousands around the country this size, if not bigger.
Ironically there was a drought alert issued a few weeks ago by the water companies, and they decreed that there should be a hosepipe ban until further notice. Obviously no one is using their hosepipe at the moment. Even cars are being washed for free by the precipitation.
I don't know how long it is going to last, but hopefully after the Bank Holiday next Monday, Mister Sunshine should be making a re-appearance. I hope so, as I have a serious amount of gardening to do.
